The Showdown: Gary Allan vs. Lady Antebellum
Allan's new song, "Hangover Tonight," sees him breaking out of the emotional doldrums that dominated his last few projects and returning to the kind of sexy material he previously explored with songs like "Nothin' on But the Radio." The song has resonated with his fans, who turned out in droves to vote, helping him to defeat McEntire's latest "Going Out Like That," which was just one win away from the Hall of Fame.
He's facing off now with Lady A's new single, "Long Stretch of Love." The track draws on their rock influences for a song that exploits the chemistry between Charles Kelley and Hillary Scott, but also features a strong contribution from Dave Haywood. Will Lady A's fans vote them on to another round, or will Allan win again in this Showdown faceoff?

Showdown Rules: The song with the most votes wins, and the winner goes on to face a new challenger in the next Showdown. Vote as much as once per hour online. If a song wins five Showdowns in a row, it will be retired into the Taste of Country Showdown Hall of Fame to allow for new songs to compete. Some songs will be considered for a second Showdown if voter turnout is healthy in a losing effort.
